gunman now identified as 24-year-old james eagan holmes. he was arrested outside the theater near the back of a apartment. outside police found three weapons in that car, another gun was found inside the theater. authorities evacuated everyone in the suspect's apartment building by 4:00 a.m. after he warned them that his home was booby trapped. when they broke in later they found incendiary and chemical devices as well as apparent trip wires. police are still on the scene at that apartment. let's get the very latest right now starting with cnn's ed lavandera. he's over at the movie theater where all of this unfolded. what is the very latest, ed? >> reporter: wolf, we've just confirmed with a law enforcement source as to where these four guns were purchased. we've been told by this law enforcement source that all four guns were purchased legally within the last six months. two of the guns were purchased at a bass pro shop in the city of denver. one of the guns was purchased at a mountain gander gun store here in the town of aurora. another was purchased at a gander mountain in thor

the apartment of james holmes, the suspected colorado shooter. a law enforcement official has described to cnn video taken from inside the apartment. he said it was set up like something from iraq or afghanistan. 30 improvised grenades rigged to a control box in the kitchen and gas containers filled with ten gallons of gas, allegedly for the purpose of adding more fuel to the fire in an explosion. cnn's jim spelman is in aurora, colorado, right outside the theater where the shooting happened. the description of the apartment is extraordinary and terrifying. what else do you know about it? >> reporter: just trying to picture 30 of the home-made grenades filled with black powder and gas containers around to amplify the fire after these things went off. all set to a srs of trip wires. one set to go off when the first person who goes in opens the door. it took them almost two days to come up with a strategy to eliminate them. ultimately they used water to disrupt the control box. these things were so volatile, they had to carry each one out in a bucket of sand to a dump truck, take them out into t

james holmes' apartment and we can take a look at that now. i should explain that it was taken from the outside looking inside. however, our crew did not actually go into the residence which is still not accessible. you could see a soldier of misfortune poster in his bedroom and other items. aurora police investigators have already removed countless pieces of evidence to be used in the case against james holmes and the apartment building where he lives remains evacuated and surrounding with police barricades although some folks have been allowed to briefly return to gather some personal belongings. of course, we all got our first look at 24-year-old james holmes yesterday as he made his first appearance before a judge in arapahoe county. he was advised of his rights and told there would be no bond. he sat away from the people in the courtroom including most of his defense team. he didn't say a word the entire time. next up for the man suspected of killing 12 people and injuring dozens more, the filing of formal charges is scheduled to ham on monday, july 30th. district attorney not
information is coming to light now, because lawyers for holmes are asking authorities to hand over a package that holmes had sent to his psychiatrist. this package was discovered in the university's medical campus mailroom on monday. and it included a letter that contained references to shooting people and drawings of a gunman and his victims. according to cbs news. we now know the package was addressed to dr. lynne fenton, the director of student mental health at the university of colorado. a resume posted on the university's website says fenton sees between 15 to 20 graduate students each week for medication and psychotherapy. she also serves as a psychiatrist, seeing between 5 and 10 patients according, again, to that resume. in a court filing, holmes public defender said, quote, the materials contained in that package include communications from mr. holmes to dr. fenton that mr. holmes asserts are privileged. mr. holmes was a psychiatric patient of dr. fenton and his communications with her are protected.

, we heard from the aurora police chief and he described how his officers identified james holmes as the suspect and not a s.w.a.t. officer despite all of his ballistic gear. >> there was one particular piece of equipment that he had on him that was out of place. i am so proud of my officers that they spotted that right away and chal llenged him. in that chaos, it is quite reasonable that an officer might have confused him for a s.w.a.t. officer or a heavily armed officer responding to the scene. so kudos to my two cops who grabbed this guy and that sharp observation that they made immediately that led them to suspect him as being a suspect. >> there is more we are learning about the 24-year-old suspected of mass murder. he will appear in court tomorrow morning for the first time and the sheriff says holmes is isolated from other inmates. reports suggest he is now also refusing to talk with police. >>> as for his boobytraped apartment, the fbi detonated explosives they collected there in a remote, desert area. they will analyze the remnants at fbi headquarters. officials say the t
, that professor was actually james holmes' psychiatrist, dr. lynn fenton. she is the head of student medical health services at the university of colorado's aurora campus. and according to holmes' attorney, mr. holmes was a psychiatric patient of dr. fenton and his communications with her are protected. that attorney is now trying to get ahold of that package and the contents of which, according to cbs news, supposedly describe how holmes would kill people. the information is privileged, according to holmes' attorney, confidential and should not be in the hands of the police. > now, i want to tell you this, on monday, school officials, including the campus police chief did answer some questions. and i want you to specifically listen to this exchange i had with the police chief regarding holmes' interaction with the campus security. >> did your department or any of your officers have any interaction with this student whatsoever? >> we -- i don't have any information on him at all. >> did you do a records check on him? >> yes. and as you already know, i think there was a traffic ticket from au

in the university of colorado mail room that appears to have been mailed by the suspected shooter, james holmes. cnn's ed lavandera is in aurora for us. ed, what do we know about this package? >> reporter: well, we're still trying to gather information on what exactly is inside that package, wolf. but as you mentioned that law enforcement official telling cnn that on monday police and fbi discovered a package that was apparent apparently sent by james holmes, the 24-year-old suspected gunman. now it's unclear obviously if this package was indeed sent by him, it was clearly sent before he was taken into custody. it arrived at some point on monday at the university mail room. we've also been told by hospital officials over the last couple of days this is something we've been monitoring for some time that there were two packages that were suspicious and were being looked into, one found in the mail room and also one that was actually delivered to a university professor. so we've been trying to nail down more information on this. and we'll continue to do so, wolf. >> what's the university of colorado sa
say holmes calmly set off some kind of device and began firing randomly and terrified moviegoers. people desperately tried to flee, in some cases, helping victims get out. in other cases, simply running for their lives. police say 71 were shot and 12 were killed. james holmes was arrested without a struggle in his car outside the theatre. police say holmes warned he rigged his apartment with explosives and in fact, his apartment has been booby trapped with explosives and trip wires. joining me now the chris jansing. chris, thank you for being with us. i know you just got there. just on to the scene. is there anything new and what is the mood there right now in aurora? >> well, as you can imagine, especially for people who lived in this area, back in 1999, this is all too familiar. we're just 12 miles down the road from the scene of the columbine shooting and it's been a horrific day. so many people who came to the scene of the shooting, trying to find out what had happened to loved ones, had they been in that particular theatre? had they been injured, been victims of the shooting
verification of that, that james holmes, the 24-year-old suspect, did indeed tell police he was the joker, but why is the outstanding question, ron. >> we've got 12 people dead, 71 reported wounded. is there any word as far as the wounded, how many of those 71 might be critically wounded? >> i just talked to some people who were at the hospital, the major hospital where the victims had been brought and they say they're being very closed mouthed. you can understand why and that is because a lot of the family members are trying to be contacted and so, we really don't know. we do know that some people have already been discharged, including a baby who was less than a year old who was inside the theatre, but as far as how many maybe seriously, maybe have life threatening injury, i haven't seen that yet. >> one thing o that occurs to me, is how did he get into the theatre with the kevlar vest and guns and everything else? is it the case that he got in first, then left through a back door, got the guns and body armor and came back in there the exit? >> that was the obvious question because as y
of the batman movies. they say james holmes carefully planned every detail of the massacre. picked a front row see the in the sold out theater and according to the police came fully equipped to kill. >> the suspect was dressed all in black. he was wearing a ba lace ticks helmet. a tactical ballistic vest. ba list take leggings, a throat protector and groin protector and gas mask and black tactical gloves. >> shepard: and this is the gas mask on the ground just outside the theater. police say the suspect threw it there. and look at the arsenal police say he used. three guns like these all purchased legally according to good sources. an assault rifle, a shotgun, a handgun and a magazine that can hold more than 100 rounds of ammo so powerful at one point it passed through the wall from one theater to the next. cops say they found another pistol in his car. it is a different picture from the way the suspect described himself. he reportedly said he was quiet and easy going on an apartment rental application and his neighbors say, indeed, he was. he graduated with honors from the university of color
